Apparently the Labour Party is to release new figures about the gender pay gap todayAugust 8, 2014August 8, 2014 Tim WorstallFeminism9 CommentsAnyone know where they actually are, those new numbers? Found them now and you can read about it at the ASI, here. previousTimmy ElsewherenextDiscovery of the day 9 thoughts on “Apparently the Labour Party is to release new figures about the gender pay gap today” dearieme August 8, 2014 at 9:39 am According to this morning’s Tel, you can be sure that if they are from Ed Mibiland, they will be the new fucking figures. Ian B August 8, 2014 at 9:43 am They’ll be dishonest. Guaranteed. Robert the Biker August 8, 2014 at 9:57 am “Anyone know where they actually are, those new numbers?” I’m going with ‘up Eds arse’ for ten here Tim 🙂 Ed Nadgers August 8, 2014 at 10:10 am Twelvety? Gamecock August 8, 2014 at 12:47 pm So, if employers cut male pay by 20%, would the Libtards then be happy? Matt August 8, 2014 at 1:37 pm OOOOH. The Blessed Gloria. She’s my MP, she is. Perhaps I should feel a letter coming on. Andrew M August 8, 2014 at 6:39 pm Presumably Gloria has advance access to the figures, since the ONS haven’t released them yet. it’s just the ASHE figures anyway. The last release (December 2013, which only covers 2012) already told us that young women slightly out-earn young men in full-time jobs. For age group 22-29, the median man earns £10.22 per hour and the median woman £10.53. Even so, while the median young man earns less than the median young woman, the mean young man still earns more. dearieme August 8, 2014 at 8:33 pm “while the median young man earns less than the median young woman, the mean young man still earns more”: there are lines of evidence that suggest than men are more diverse than women. An obvious one is IQ measurements. John77 August 8, 2014 at 11:54 pm The mean pay for men at all ages is higher, partly because they do more work (ONS data merely states that they work more hours but, despite a few counter-examples like my big sister, general observation is that men do a lot more work). A lot of receptionists get bored because they don’t have enough to do. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
